The Senate Commerce Committee approved and sent to the full Senate a bill that would give the FAA six months to issue pilot certificates that include photo identification. AOPA has long advocated such a move but believes that the six-month time frame for implementation is unrealistic. The legislation would require the photo ID for pilots to include biometric data or other unique identifiers.
Senate may ok pilot certificates with photos
